Abstract

Multicenter databases are increasingly utilized in pediatric cardiovascular research. In this review, we discuss the rational for using these types of data sources, provide several examples of how large datasets have been utilized in clinical research, and describe different mechanisms for linking databases to enable studies not possible with individual datasets alone.
